I've had to get pretty creative too. The SRO troopers, having webgear with grey trim, I've made them adjutents or assistants to the officers they come with. The yellow gear trooper in the Legions pack is now Scarface's adjutent (he's pretty grateful to have someone to kick around for once). I guess the new guys will be field troopers and my silversigil ones will be security, or some other brach or rank.

I love army building Cobra Troopers! I would like to buy 5 or 6 of those to add to my current Cobra Troopers army.
That red babaclava issue is easy to fix with a little black acrylic paint. I maybe do that with a couple of those troopers.

I'm confused. Did this guy just come out? o.O

It's very disappointing to see diaper crotches in wave 12.
The diaper crotches on new figures should have been fixed for all of them already. Even more so because there is a new mold with a fixed crotch.
It's forgivable in an exclusive set, but on a single carded figure... a big no no!!!
I'll might get a few and paint the masks black if I can't obtain any original troopers anymore to finish the army of 60 blueshirts with red sigils, black webgear & mask...
Although I have other priorities over the blueshirts for now.

However many I find of this guy, I'm buying no matter what. But he's getting either his head swapped out and/or repainted black (neck and mask) to match the original 5 pack figure.
Looks like he has the peg hole in his back at the very, very least. All of my first run 5 pack 25th Cobra Soldiers were lacking the peg hole. I actually made 3 extra soldiers by combining the torso and arms of the Airtrooper with the legs head and webgear of the"Viper Pilot". They currently are plugged into my 3 C.L.A.W.s...
I have no idea what Hasbro's problem is though. It does seem like they ARE purposefully trying to anger their customers with some of these design/mold changes (or lack thereof)
I'm so glad that after buying the comic pack Tripwire off eBay the first week it came out, I can now but the very same figure in a singlepack with none of those pesky corrections to the mold like smooth pads and chestplate... I mean really, who would want that? Why would you want the figure to look like the original, when you can just have a repainted Flash?
(Hasbro marketing; If you're reading this, that last paragraph was dripping with sarcasm, ok? That was not a pat on the back for a job well done. Maybe some day when you do a good job I'll give you one. Until then you get a big fat "MEH." from me.)

There has GOT to be something better to complain about.

All I know is that I've learned a new word in this thread: "balaclava"!
And you can never get enough posts debating the worth of a "diaper crotch".
